After years of working in restaurants, hotel spas and catering. I settled down.
Not that raising two children in a small New York City apartment is anything less than unsettling….but for me, let’s call it “semi-retired”.
So in my semi-tired state, I began to cook at home. I went from a grand eight burner stove….to my tiny 4 electric burner with an typical NYC electric oven that could barely accommodate a thanksgiving turkey. I started hanging out with mothers who declared, quite fairly, that this stay at home-cook at home thing “wasn’t working for them”. They needed help.
We all want to eat well at home. It’s just not easy. People have different palates, time is limited and a typical urban kitchen is smaller than a suburban closet.
Being the kind of person who really likes to help people. I decided to offer services to help busy people eat home made meals again.
My goal is to bring back the ritual of dining together as family and friends within our homes-without the head aches.
